Pair of Antique Glass Lamps and Flea Market Friday #5

Welcome to the 5th Flea Market Friday!
Again, I am sorry there was no party last week.
My hubby being sick took up most of our week.
Thank goodness, all is well now.
Be careful if you get this respiratory thing going around.
It is awful this year here in the Midwest. 
As you might have seen in yesterday's post, I have started the holiday decorating.
Aka... my house will be a mess for the foreseeable future.
For our family we love traditions, one of them is the "candy bar" on the antique sideboard.  I enjoy decorating this area every year.  This area always looks so pretty with the lights reflected in the mirror.
 This year I decided to go very neutral, letting all my glassware sparkle.
 For today's FLEA MARKET FIND I wanted to show you these antique lamps.  I found them this past summer for $1 a piece at a rummage sale.  One works and the other needs rewired.  I added the crystals from EBay.  I love their size and how they balance this area.  I will try to get them both working this winter.  ( One of several projects to do) 
 I broke apart two large sprays of glittered ferns for the swag.
 I love this elegant, yet simple idea and the champagne color is perfect. 
 What is in the candy bowls?  Chocolate and mints so far... things don't last for long!
 This is about all I have gotten done so far.  I am still going thru totes and putting my fall stuff away.
 I am hoping to make some burlap flowers and other goodies for this area soon.
I went to a Christmas Fair last week and have many projects I want to do!  Now I just have to find the time and energy to get on it!  

Okay, let's enjoy some lovely features...

Kathleen of Charm Bracelet Diva found some awesome goodies this week in her travels.  I especially love this footed cup and the Chippendale nut dishes.
